Gibside summer nights

Explore Gibside after hours. The summer sun and lighter nights are ideal for longer adventures, so we're opening the whole estate until late.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Stroll around this eighteenth-century landscape garden while the sun sets, celebrate history through two contemporary art installations and down your picnic blanket. This is about making the most of the summer with loved ones. You can quench your thirst with ale and lager on tap, bottled cider or wine, alongside a range of soft drinks. Order a fresh made to order wood-fired pizza, and enjoy your evening relaxing.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

Please note...

For Gibside summer nights, it's free entry for National Trust members or normal admission charges apply (including to the cafe / pub).
